The Solar Advantage

As long as the sun shines, either direct or indirect, the Solar Tracking Unit will be replenished with more power. Unlike battery-operated systems, the patented Solar Tracking Unit sends out dozens of important messages a day. The unit has a longer life than traditional battery systems. Lat Lon's patented three stage power model produces greater power, which delivers more frequent user data.  Additionally, Lat Lon's power design will not degrade over time like other simple, rechargeable systems.

Built-in Intelligence

The Solar Tracking Units know if they are stopped or in motion. When moving, the unit sends location reports up to every 10 minutes. Alarms, including impacts, are sent out in real-time and can be sent directly to your cell phone. The Solar Tracking Unit doesn’t have to conserve power like battery systems and can give you better visibility to the how, when and where of your shipment.
